Ohio State's Big Ten Championship chances are riding on Michigan. The Big Ten rules state that a team can only participate in the Big Ten Championship game if they’ve played at least six games this season.
Ohio State's sixth game is scheduled for next weekend against Michigan. The Wolverines are currently dealing with a COVID-19 outbreak and there are doubts that they will be able to play next week.
They already had to cancel this weekend's game as 15 players and staff have tested positive this week.
#Michigan's latest COVID-19 update for the UM athletic department: Positive test results from Nov. 28-Dec. 4: Fifteen (14 student-athletes, 1 staffer).

You would hate to see Michigan be unable to take the field next week and Ohio State be ruled ineligible for the Big Ten Championship game. You would just hate to see it.
Don't we all want Ohio State in the College Football Playoffs so we can watch them get their asses handed to them? It wouldn't feel like a real College Football season if that didn't happen.
